The Henley Partnership - 'Leading and Communicating Change' with Darren Briggs

As event 4 of 4 in the change stream for 2015, we will examine how you lead change. We’ll very deliberately focus on communication, which your people will tell you is a personal or organisation weakness as we see more and more change.

Recent research highlights that only 1 in 5 leaders are trusted by the general public to talk openly about challenging or difficult issues. The same sentiment can be carried over into the workplace where employees want their leaders to be more trustworthy and transparent especially during change. In 2013 The Economist Intelligence Unit reported that on average just 56% of strategic initiatives were successful. Those that succeeded said that leadership buy in and building a culture of trust were the key drivers of success. Using an appropriate mix of theory, research and case studies, this masterclass will focus on the relationship between inspirational communication and the successful implementation of organisational change. Content areas include:

• Latest thinking on creating employee buy in to change

• Putting yourself in your employees shoes

• The Tipping Point principle of change

• Using stories to build an engaging message

• Powerful conversations to build trust
